Labor and Employment

We know it is hard to run a successful business. One of the most difficult aspects of running a business can be managing employees. The laws that regulate the relationship between employees and employers are complex, complicated, and ever-changing.

We are here to help employers navigate this difficult area of law. We provide an array of services to employers — from helping draft employee policies and procedures to assisting with employee discipline and termination, we have the expertise to guide you. We counsel employers on a wide variety of employment issues including wrongful discharge, discrimination and harassment, retaliation, wage and hour claims, FMLA, and insurance matters.

Our primary objective is to help you avoid claims and disputes, which can be distracting, expensive, and stressful. However, sometimes litigation cannot be avoided. In those instances, we are your tireless advocates in the courtroom.

We have successfully represented numerous employers in front of the Montana Human Rights Bureau, the EEOC, and in state and federal court. In addition to all of this, we recognize that running a business means paying close attention to the bottom line. We work to ensure that our services are provided in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible.

Testimonials

what people are saying

Curt and his team provided the assistance, interpretation of the law and guidance that I needed to successfully address an employment issue. Corporate management and HR staff didn't take my claims seriously until I hired an attorney. Curt helped me craft a letter proposing a separation agreement that got their attention. After two months of getting "the corporate runaround", we fairly resolved the matter in a couple weeks, with minimal legal expense for both parties.
